It has been a while since I have been able to post photos. My son and his wife have now settled into a house in Surrey in the UK, and are thoroughly enjoying it.
Since I last posted I have had my operation for the hernia, and also more heart troubles. Think the poor old ticker is getting a bit tired. Last Thursday week I was admitted with heart failure. An xray showed and enlarged heart and fluid , which was caused by the specialists in Brisbane changing my medications in February and taking me off the bloodpressure/fluid tablets and reducing the bloodpressure one to half the strength.
I had been to the doctor with a choking cough and gasping for breath, weight gain, and high blood pressure........only to be told it was a cold night, that I had asthma, and my BP monitor was faulty I couldnt possible have readings so high 170-180...when hers only read 166/whatever.
Anyway I insisted on something else being done, and she sent me for xray and a nuclear imaging test for clots in the lungs. She was in a panic when I phoned her for the results, and told me to be careful and come back in the morning when she would contact the cardiologist because I had heart failure...........hello? .......I wonder why she did not ring the specialist when she received the results to have me admitted to the cardiac ward......
I want to change doctors, but would I get anything different.
I must be a pretty tough old girl though because I have come through all this.......a lot weaker and more breathless, but alive.
Here is a photo of when a branch dropped onto the roof and the fence during one of the storms.
Well guess what!!!! It has GONE!!!!!! Evidently the council got tired of the complaints about the damage to the units with blocked up gutters. To say nothing of the cost to the owners and their insurance.......
Yippee here it is now....
I cant understand why anyone would plant gums anywhere near buildings anyway. So hope this does not upset the greenies.....it was damn dangerous and finally someone saw some sense.
Since I came home from hospital last week I am feeling better, but still having trouble breathing. Thankfully Blue Care come and do my vacuuming and mopping for me and himself took me to do a stock up shop before he left.
For now I am just resting and doing a minimum of things. Cant walk to the shops on my own yet, because of the breathlessness, but that will come.
The good news is that as I lose the extra fluid I also lose weight....am down to 64.5 kg from 68.5 kg when I went to hospital.
Bye for now, thanks for visiting and listening to all my health problems once more. I will try to behave in future.
